Still caught up in the clutter

The most interesting thing I came across today was a journal entry I started on 5-19-92. I'm posting it here because a lot of you will be familiar with that feeling when we're working on a project.

"I'm knitting a garter stitch scarf. Sometimes I think it's good to refresh yourself and relax with the basics--no counting, just the rhythm of the work, click-swish of the needles and the feel of the yarn. I get lost in thought and time. It's that way when I stitch a quilt too."

The trouble with my hands has forced me to give up hand knitting and limited my hand sewing but the feeling is the same on any project that I work on. These days it's painting and those easy crochet potholders.
